“I just want y’all to have a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful day today and I’m sure I’ll be posting more things as the day goes on, because I’ll have all my friends here,” she says.

It does not appear that she posted anything later on, however. She concludes the video by warmly telling her fans: “I hope you have a beautiful day. Wake up, wake up, wake up. Or sleep in. Or stay in bed all damn day today. It’s Sunday, right? Love you all, peace.”

California cops found Chyna dead in her home three days later after responding to a 911 call from a friend of the former WWE star, who said she was not breathing. Chyna had failed to answer the phone for several days.
Authorities have not released a cause of death, but are investigating a possible overdose, according to TMZ. An autopsy was planned in the next few days.
After leaving the WWE in 2001, Chyna posed for Playboy and appeared in adult films and on reality TV shows “The Surreal Life” and “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.”
Chyna called herself the “Ninth Wonder of the World” after Andre the Giant had already called himself the eighth.
“Today we lost a true icon, a real life superhero,” read a statement on her website. “Joanie Laurer aka Chyna, the 9th Wonder of the World has passed away. She will live forever in the memories of her millions of fans and all of us that loved her.”
The Rochester, N.Y., native graduated from the University of Tampa before embarking on her wrestling career.
